Swarmrobotics is one of the most fascinating and new research areas of recent decades, and one of the grand challenges of robotics is the design of swarm robots that are self-sufficient. This can be crucial for robots exposed to environments that are unstructured or not easily accessible for a human operator, such as the inside of a blood vessel, a collapsed building, the deep sea, or the surface of another planet. In this paper, the authors present a comprehensive study on hardware architecture and several other important aspects of modular swarmrobots, such as self-reconfigurability, self-replication, and self-assembly.
